Alot of people will laugh when 
they read "Second Anniversary" 
on the cover. Our pal John of 
The Battered Wives and Punk 
laughs each time we bring in a 
new issue to peddle ("PIG Paper 
Number 7", he'll smirk. "Come 
off it...") But seriously folks 
As PP7 entered the presses, it 
was practically twenty-four 
months to the day that our 
equally gala premiere issue hit 
Carlton Street outside of 
Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens as 
The Who hit the stage inside . 
Heck, we're nearly as old as The 
Dishes! As we enter our third 
and brightest year, it is time 
to reflect. It is time to 
remember all those good people 
(Larry Round, Rock Serling's 
bank) who were always there to 
offer assistance. It is also 
„ time to remember all those 
v3"0sr"° creep-os (you know who you are) 
* who were always there to offer 
discouragement. But, most impor- 
tantly »f all, it is time for 
our bi-monthly list of thank 
you's: Record companies are 
beginning to realize we exist 
(ah-hemm!): Thanks to Polydor 
for mysteriously placing the 
mysterious Johnny Pig on The 
Motors' Guest List, and Special 
V VA..-VJ Thanks to Joe Owens of Columbia

stores still remain oblivious to 
our invaluableness, the excep- 
tions being Star Records' Rash 
sorry, PAUL Kobak, House Of 
Nostalgia's Ted Vallee, and, 
naturalment, Larry of Round 
Records. Thanks 2 too New Rose 
(which, coincidentally, is NOT 
run by The Viletones as was 
scandously recorded in PP6: It's 
the pride and joy of El Mocombo 
waitress and Number One Freddy 
<*'v7\ &~S Pompeii fan Margarita Passion) 
^W^;-. . ^ and Punk (Hello, Wives) for

Toronto bands 'n 'hangers-on, 
especially Ralph "B.de.B" Alph- 
onso for The Diodes guest passes

Brower for not sueing us . We 
appreciate it. See you all in

PIG PUNK PART 

BOUH 

have for the past two years been embroiled in bloody battle with DJs, teeny 
ploppers, discoducks and The Port Perry City Council, all of whom remain to 
this day dead set against their joyous brand of good ol 'rock'n 'roll. Therefore 
VIC, MARK, ELAY and MIKE are scrounging up their pennies, stockpiling their 
Kraft Dinner, and turning their glare towards, where else?, Toronto, whose 
streets are reportedly paved with spit. But first, the four are diligently 
stitching up their sure-fire repetoire, choosing "Violent Violet" and 
"Arrogant With Age" to launch the long-awaited PIG Records label. Then, when 
you least expect it, DOLE-Q will have you lined up outside T.O.'s latest punk: 
palace eagerly awaiting a potent dose of soon-to-be-re-employed rock:. 

m ma 

sprang to life during the lava-hot Summer of Seventy- 
Seven as protoges of the note-orious VILETONES. During 
this embryonic era, MIKE, RAY, SAM and TONY fought 
their way up from faceless opening act status to the 
level of bonafide underground sensations via their 
pretty passion for exposing genitalia and dressing in 
DAMNED-like drag. However, it was not until the night 
of September 17 that the lads shot to stardom when 
they became the willing recipients of TEENAGE HEAD 
manager JOHN BROWER 's slugs at the infamous "Outrage" 
punxtravaganza. Thusly was their rightful spot in the 
Punk Hole Of Fame forever assured. Since then, they'.ve 
gone on to pioneer Toronto's Shock Theatre as a rock 
joint as well as producing the city's Other newave 
newsletter '*Torrana Punxq". What's up-coming for THE 
UGLY? Their own record, performances farther afield, 
and, undoubtedly, even wilder, more widespread acclaim.

"is a mutant offspring from the mating of the rookingest bands on the east 
coast: THE SLICKEE BOYS, THE GIZMOS, THE LOOK, THE TEENAGE BOYS, 'REX and 
THE KAISER'S KITTENS" according to the liner notes of their punk-packed LP 
MUSIC TO KILL BY. The quintet's Army Of Rhythm Guitarists, SOLOMON, GIZMO, 
TfiE~JT5ff7~KTM7 and KEN, were born out of Brooklyn fanzine Oj^extasj and 
issued one EP as 'REX before amalgamating into "a punk supersession in the 
words of Washington's Unicorn Times . Already receiving raves overseas 
(Sounds), THE KORPS are curren^Iy^lasting them between Boston and Maryland, 
andsEould us locals take to their discs, SOLOMON swears he'll bring the 
band to Toronto and show us how it's Really done. In the meantime, with-it 
newavers continue to sing THE AK's praises whilst vopping berserkly to the 
jungle-rock strains of 'Buzz Stomp" and "Wild Mouse". Get Yours by writing

HOLLIES 

TERRY 
SYLVESTER ., 




GARY PIG 






Even the most punktured 
newavists will confess, 
"The Hollies - Yeah, I 
heard of them". With a 
fifteen-year-long string 
of achievments, not to 
mention recent TeeVee 
exposure courtesy of 
quickiexmas compilations 
of their material, these 
near-lone survivors of 
The Gear Years are still 
going strong with a 
grand new album, A CRAZY 
STEAL (Columbia PES90444) 
And they just luv Canada 
So much so that they 
scheduled a whole day 
for The Press November 
10 in their succulent 
clump of Hyatt Regency 
luxury suites . Naturally 
(ha-rumph) The PIG Paper 
was invited along. 

We were offered eith- 
er frontman Allan Clarke 
or guitarists Terry 
Sylvester and Tony Hicks 
as a twofer to grill, 
and I instantly chose T 
8c T coz I wanted to ask 
Terry all about his old 
band The Swinging Blue 
Jeans and Tony how he 
managed to retain his 
baby face, as fresh now 
as it was on the cover of their 
first LP in '63. But upon being 
whisked up into Hollies Head- 
Quarters on the twenty-ninth 
floor, the scene revealed itself 
to be one of carefree party- 
going, and we won words from 
each and every Hollie (even re- 
clusive bassist Bernie Calvert 
and drummist Bobby "I 'm The 
Clown Of The Group" Elliot). 
But most of our time was spent 
at Terry's window as the 
Toronto rush hour snarled far 
below • 




"Beautiful view, innit?" said 
Terry as he sunk into a plush 
piece of Hyatt upholstery, 
giggling with charm as I or- 
dered "Water - double ice" 
when the record company 
f lunkie served the booze . 
"Let *s call this interview 
WHIPS AND BONDAGE" Lagoona 
said in her own charming 
giggle. "Oh right - You must 
be the punk paper" Terry said 
as a lightbulb illuminated 
overhead. "No, that's PIG 
Paper - P..I. G", I said, 
giggling and charming as ever. 

I say I say I say 

Terry showed no small sur- 
prise when I began by shoving 
him smack into the middle of 
Memory Lane with my unfallible 
Merseybeat resources . I was 
the only North American member 
of the press who seemed to 
know of Terry^ first band The 
Escorts: "I was fourteen or 
fifteen, singing Everly Brothers 
and "You've Lost That Loving 
Feeling "(pre -Righteous Brothers) 
In the north of England. Those 
were the most exciting days: 
Ju3t imagine yourself straight 
out of school and onto the 
stage in front of all your 
friends!" I could sense a 
nostalgic glint deep in Terry's 
"There was a real scene in the 
Liverpool - Manchester area in •6l- , 62. 
Yes, of course, there was The Beatles: 
They were always a bit different from 
the rest - even then. It was a very 
active time for pop, just like the punk 
thing that's going on now I suppose". 

But the same thing that 's threatening 
the punk thing today killed the British 
Beat Boom over a decade ago: "Suddenly 
the clubs were full of agents and mana- 
gers. They came in trainloads up from 
London, promising to make us all rich 
and famous. Some made it. Most didn't". 
The Escorts were among the latter, 



eyes 



folding in the mid-Sixties with only 
precious little vinyl left behind, 
hut Terry didn't mind ("If I'd made 
it then, I'd only have gone out and 
bought a big American car, got drunk, 
and smashed it up") and soonafterwards 
hustled himself into the aformentioned 
Blue Jeans: "SBJ were on their vay 
down then, although they're still 
active in Scandinavia today". 

"We backed The Hollies a few times. 
I'd always been a big fan of theirs, 
ever since our Manchester club days". 
Imagine Terry's delight when, in 1969, 
he was asked to replace Graham Nash in 
his dream band J "It was a great stroke 
of luck really"(Modest lad!) "I'd been 
trying to get going for seven or eight 
years, and not getting anywhere fast. 
Then, here I was in The Hollies! Three 
weeks later, "Sorry Suzanne" came out 
and was a hit in England. Three months 
later, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" 
came out and was a hit everywhere!" 

That was seven years ago. Since then, 
Terry & Co. have kept one step ahead of 
the moptop revival machine by continuing 
to produce legitimate music and contin- 
uing to tour, an average of seven months 
per year. "We're not strictly Swinging 
Sixties like, say, The Dave Clark Five. 
We came close tho, when we used to wear 
those silly white suits everywhere. Be-

sides, that was Graham's idea, 
and later he used it as one of 
the reasons why he HAD to leave 
The Hollies". Smirk Smirk, "We 
are above all characterization, 
really. We are The Hollies". 

Yes, we all agreed the daze 
of a-hit-a-month and Murry The K 
package tours are Hollies History 
now, but we also agreed a new 
Hollies Hit would be nice (it's 
been five years since "The Air 
That I Breathe") and maybe a 
tour of the USA, where they have 
not ventured since 1972. And 
just why have they avoided the 
country they spent The Sixties 
conquering? "Umm, let's just say 
differences between us and our 
American record company and 
leave it at that". Nudge Nudge. 
But several Hollies took the 
time to assure us that these 
problems are about to be resol- 
ved, and 1978 will see the band 
performing and releasing discs 
stateside once again. Could be 
Hit time again, eh Terry? "Let's 
hope so". 

At this moment, Johnny Pig 
arrived with his roving lens, 
fashionably late as always . He 
dove immediately into a somewhat

LSEXJiaJUGfll: TERRY SYLVESTER, LAGOON A PIG, GARY PIG,BERNIE CALVERT 



Montreal, Nov 1977 
Tovarish, 

Just completed another successful East European run. Bringing Blue jeans 
to the nation! At 1000 zlotys per leg it beats Bibles every time. 

Thought you would like to know about the punk scene in the good old 
Stkj of j&ct. After making some nice red market transactions in Ternopil, also 
known as. little Toronto since it is the central duaping-off point for the 
bloazheenskL trade , I got word that things were jumping in certain quarters 
of Leningrad, always the cultural centre of Russia since they stole the cream 
of Europe's art works and set up the Pepsi factory. 

Seems that there was a run on razor blades and safety pins and that a 
well-wishing entrepreneur could make a tidy sum providing these essential 
artifacts of a bloated capitalistic society to the deprived masses. At 5 
rubles a time, a philanthropist such as myself could do much to relieve their 
misery. 

A cable was duly sent back home and after assurance that it was not a 
military code, I set up contact with Z in postal station 3> right in the heart 
of downtown Elgrad so that the distribution. chain would not be interfered with 
by greedy officials wanting their and their brother-in-law's cut. Z is the only 
man I know of in the whole Soviet Union who has two refrigerators, by the way, 
so this must prove his efficiency. 

Anyway, I was steered to a certain apartment block on Yaltinskaya just 
before it hits the Moskovsky Prospect, and was told to ask whether the boilers 
ran well. If my contact produced a plumber's wrench, then I was to go down, with 
him to the basement, otherwise I was to say that I really wanted to buy some 
oranges. 

The wrench appeared and I was shown into a dingy hole. Steam hissed through 
cracks at every join in the pipes and the boiler seemed in imminent danger of 
sending the block moonwards. Such Advances there have been made. 

I got the best seat - an old American lease-lend canvas director's chair. 
Six or seven wooden fold-ups completed the seating arrangements. Two strings 
of naiced light bulbs suddenly lit up. One youth in the corner pulled the 
cord up and down, and another deftly unplugged and replugged them to try to 
get a strobe effect. Pour performers burst out from behind the boilers. Rings 
were paired round their eyes to match the crude paint- job done on the lights, 
and one wore a pair of red and green 3D cinema glasses. 

The music was as decadent as I have ever heard behind the iron curtain 
of any basement caberet. It had passed Woody Herman and showed a distinct 
EP touch. Incidently, the news of the death of Elvis was blowni completely 
out of proportion in the local rag - it spelled out the collapse of the 
Western economy. Could be right. 

The lack of decent amps did not help their frenzied twanging, but the 
boilers did help the general melee. A stuffed woolen babushka doll was 
ceremoniously stomped on, much to the aghast of the tiny audience who kept 
glancing furtively either at me or over their shoulders most of the time. 

Between sets my host informed me that this was the top Leningrad punk 
rock group - or exponents of x*a£ pek< as it is known. A smuggled copy of an 
article from the London Observer colour mag and the memory of a seaman who 
had visited New York had started the whole thing off about three months down 
the road ago and it had caught on bigger than the hula hoop. 

A few more non-des crip t numbers - mainly propaganda about the good life 
in Greenwich Village - PoACfjoXcc* HJa/m., <*. ^p-o-u*. &*-* which roughly means 
Rolls-Royce we don't have, but drugs we do, was probably the best - and the 
group vanished as quickly as they appeared, leaving their road men to stuff 
the lights into a hole in the wall and stash their pins and blades underneath 
the floor. The caretaker's wife did a quick stitch- job on babushka and the 
audience did some whispering and handshaking with him before leaving one by 
one at five second intervals. 

I hope Z doesn't pull a fast one on me because I have a big scheme in 
the back of my mind. for last year's K-Tel releases. 

Keep on pigging, 

V\4.r+4- CocU©*>\.

THE TRUTH BEHIND TOMMY RAMONE 



It was New Year's Eve, and by way of celebration I had just contracted 
polio from Gary Pig and renamed my dog "Chanzibar ". (it used to be "Duke". 
I think "Chanzibar is a great improvement, even though four out of six 
Hamlltonians insist it sounds African). Suddenly, I felt a wave of nostalgia 
rush over me which washed me back to mid- '76, September to be semi -exact, 
when I saw The Ramones for the first then second time Inside Toronto's New 
Yorker Theatre. They put on a thoroughly refreshing rock'n'roll revival, and 
by the sounds of their newest elpee ROCKET TO RUSSIA (which sports The Second 
Best Sleeve Of All Time; The First Best Sleeve Of All Time Award goes to The 
Ramones 1 RAMONES: a classic album in every way shape and form), Joey, Johnny, 
Dee Dee and Tommy are still rocking, and becoming more Beach Boys with every 
spin. And so in tribute to R.TO R.(ten oinks), I have decided to share with 
each and every one of you The True Story behind Tommy Ramone 's behind, and 
how I had a close encounter with it that night at the New Yorker. 

The curtain had just fallen after Toronto heard "Pinhead" for the first 
(or was it second?) time. All us Pigs were still vopping, not pogo'ing, and 
being The Ramones Fanatic I had by now become, I decided I really couldn't 
let the evening end just yet. I mean, what was this anyways - a Grateful Dead 
concert? So I turned to Eddie of Simply Saucer and said "Hey Ed "(he was 
known as Edgar in those pre-RockShock daze, even though it sounded African), 
"I think I'll pinch Tommy Ramone 's bum". Ed sed "I bet...", so naturally I 
made a bet with him. To make good on it, we immediately rushed the stage, 
where I found my victim innocently perched atop a smoldering amp. 

"Tommy, get down from there please". 

Tommy said "Why? ". 

I said "Because". 

Tommy said "Why?". 

I said "Because". 

Tommy said "Why? ". 

I said "Because". 
( I couldn't tell him 

Tommy said "WHY?". 

I said "Because". 

Tommy said "WHY??". 

I said "BECAUSE". 

Tommy said "WHY?? !' .' ". 

I said "B+JE^JSl A U^S JS .' .' .'". 

I could understand^Tommy"'s'hesitance : He probably thought I just wanted to 
see how short he was. But finally he slid down to stage-level and asked me, 
"What is It?" 

I gave him a great big pinch on the behind. 
I explained to him that it was all a bet (which I won: Hey Eddie - Where's 
my copy of "Lies" by The Knickerbokers?) , and Tommy didn't bat a stick. We 
all went home, only to meet again In the New Yorker's infamous Basement 
several months later (see PIG Paper #5, page 9). But still, sometimes, late 
at night, particularly on New Year's Eves, as I lay in my bed waiting for 
the detectives, my thumb and fore-finger drift back to that historic night 
so long ago, yet, so recent 



why) 



I REMEMBER YOU 

I remember you. 

I remember lying awake at night 

And thinking just of you 

But things don't last forever 

And somehow baby 

They never really do.

Canadian primitives: well, isn't a Diode 
some kind of bog? 

They look young, short-haired and 
sullen; they look lean and dirty-minded 
— in short, they look like punks. They 
are The Diodes, the Canadian punk-rock 
group most likely to make it big in 1978. 
Punk rock is a primitive form of rock V 
roll based on crude three-chord songs 
with nasty, antisocial lyrics. The Diodes 
are the first Canadian group to make 
waves in the punk-rock field, which is 
led by Britain's Sex Pistols and, in the 
U.S., The Dead Boys. The first Diode 
single, Red Rubber Ball, sold out within 
days of its release in November; then 
came an album. The Diodes, and a series 
of gigs in New York. In 1978 the quartet 
will tour Britain, the U.S. and Japan. 
Black leather jackets and clean-cut but 
sinister looks wilt continue to be their 
trademark. Says drummer John Hamil- 
ton, 22: "There's only one of us who can 
grow a beard." 



incongrous tete-a-tete with Terry 
concerning the Quebec political 
coldron as I wandered next door to 
find Bernie Calvert lounging 'round : 
"We just played a one-nighter in 
Thunder Bay, Lord help us. Guess 
why nobody showed up? We put ads 
up all over town: TONIGHT - THE 
HOLLIES, and nobody believed them!" 
I must admit, the very thought of a 
deserted main street in the heart 
of Ontario beaver pelt territory 
rocking to the sounds of "Long Cool 
Woman In A Black Dress" does seem 

somewhat infathomable

coming PIGALLERYs no doubt . Larry 
LeBlanc emerged from an adjoining 
room with Tony Hicks: "My baby

coz I 'm a clean liver". 

What a great bunch. Together

and level as the Wilson brothers •

Vibrators 

Riding the crest of the largest 
promo blitz to ever splash 
Toronto, England's crack schutz 
staffel combo The Vibrators 
succeded in establishing a 
beach head foothold for the 
planned British Invasion (one 
more time with feeling) of 
North Amerika on the stage of 
the New Yorker theatre. Still 
pulsating lewdly from gigs in 
Ottawa, Montreal and a whirl- 
wind tour of NATO bunkers in 
Germany (where their as yet 
unrecorded tune "Baader-Meinhof j 
Boogie" was met with stiff re- 
sistance) , the Vibrators 
billeted themselves in the 
Carlton Inn and prepared to 
meet the press. The big ques- 
tion on everyone ' s mind was 
to what extent, if any, were 
the Vibrators involved in the 
Hans Martin-Schleyer kidnapping 

incident. Lead guitarist and intellectual John Ellis stated flatly that the Vibrators were not 
involved but did mention that the band had used the unfounded accusations to their advantage 
by launching a sizable publicity campaign of questionable taste which featured the Vibrators 
in various and compromising poses of a sexually aberrant nature. The band is fronted by KNOX, 
a neo-nasty Mersy Beatnic with a pink formica guitar and a V-2 rocket in his pocket, who 

strutted his black nylon battle fatigues just 
out of reach of the handful of beer swilling 
vibrettes, led by Mickey Skin and her sisters in 
song. The show was ear marked by very impressive 
performances of excessively loud, monolithic, 
repetitive and often (dare I say it) boring music. 
The evenings big disappointment was not the 
opening act (GODO) but the fact the Vibrators 
failed to play their Interstellar Overdrive/ Day 
Tripper Suite. I guess we will have to wait for 
the psych edelic revival J:o hear that one.

They played louder than

and I'm no greenhorn at this 
game. In this case the volume 
seemed to fit the crowd-, a 
motley. seJf-cdnscious crew 



that needed a considerable 
jolt before it could respond in 
proper fashion, to whit, jump- 
ing up and down. Yes, there is 
still a fair bit of pogoin' at 
these events, an artyfact left 
over from the first punk era. 

The rock and roll they 
played had very much the feel 
of a blunt instrument on the 
back of the skull, a shock as 
satisfying and as close to a 
meaningful experience as can 
be squeezed from an event 
like that. And, clumsily, they 
introduced a couple of tunes 
that sacrificed energy for art. 
Middle-of-the-road, here they 
come.

BOOGIEMEN 

The Viletones, Toronto's own punkband sensation, were 
thrown off the stage of Yonge Station in the middle of their 
scheduled one-week appearance. 

It seems the owners of the club warned Nazi Dog, the 
group's lead singer, to stop blowing his nose on the front 
tables of the audience. He was doing it without a han- 
dkerchief, if ya know what I mean. 

"If you do that again, you guys are out," warned the club. 

In true punk tradition, he did, and so did the manager. The 
week ended Wednesday. 

Ah, but tomorrow night, you can see The Viletones boogie 
(don't sit up front! ) at a new punk rock palace called Shock 
Theatre at 565 College street. It's the old Kensington 

moviehouse.

THE LAST 

ONE TASTES 
AS GOOD AS 

THE FIRST 



by I.MANTS 



FREDDIE AND THE DREAMERS AT THE ROSE AND THISTLE, DUNDAS : 
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 26, 1977 

It was Florrie 's ninety-eighth birthday today and she 
loved the show. All her young friends and relatives (ages 
fifty to seventy-five) were there, and they loved it too. 
So much for the rock generation. 

Tried ordering fish & chips at about 11:30 but the kitchen 
was closed. No problem - we'll have potatoe chips - go up 
to the bar - sorry, we're right out of potatoe chips - sit 
down again - ask the waitress "Do you have peanuts?" - Yes 

- okay, four bags of peanuts please - five minutes elapse - 
"We've only got three bags of peanuts in the whole place" 

- we'll take them - And I thought this was a cheese shop.*. 

Anyhow, the show was amazing. Some of the grossness 
would make Wayne County blush. Fine medley of "Good 
Morning Starshine "/"Short Shorts" where three of the band 
pulled their pants down. Standing ovations and encores 
about four songs from the end when they hadn 't even 
finished the set. What a bunch of loonies. 
PS: The guy that books the bands says up-coming acts 

include The Caravelles, Black Abbots, and The Barron 
Knights Mi (He's even got Duke D'Mond's phone number!) 

THURSDAY OCTOBER 27, 1977 

Includes "Do The Freddie" after "I Believe In Music" and 
drops "Make Your Own Sunshine". Lots of attacking 
waitresses and one lady in the crowd in particular.

AND THE DREAMERS 

Five young guys from Man- 
chester, England who call them- 
selves Freddie and The Dreamers 
are a smash hit in the U.S.A., and 
the most-talked-about act ever to 
grace the stages of those TV 
music palladiums, HULLABALOO 
and SHINDIG. Here are Freddie 
and The Dreamers exclusively on 
Mercury Records with an exciting 
new collection of their best show- 
stopping selections, plus num- 
bers never before performed on 
this side of the Atlantic.

A videotape of their recent 
Rainbow concert reveals 
Eddie ft The Hot Rods, who 
make their North American 
debut at the Masonic Temple 
on Sunday, to be a powerful 
outfit with enormous teen 
appeal. 

Singer Barrie Masters 
roams the stage restlessly, 
force-feeding bits of melody 
down the throat of his 
microphone while the rest of 
the Rod s build and re-build

I 



I was In no mood for punc rok this night - Lagoona Pig vas having her 
bi-weekly breakdown, I had gotten a job, I discovered Allen Clarke 
looked real old - but a sense of duty brought me to The Chimney, the 
latest Toronto bar turned punk. Inside, the usual trendsetters (one 
bair of Teenage Head, three quarters of The Viletones, all of The 
Diodes) were hogging the ring-side tables and trying to be noticed. 
There was lotsa smoke and The Toyz Fan Club was whooping it up. I 
was still in no mood for punc rok. 

However, The Boyfriends were on stage. I'd caught them July 30 at the 
Crash n Burn: they sported basic chains-on-black and a clrca-1961 
Silver Beatles repetoire. Tonight, they were still dressed to the 
depths of anti-fashion, still retained a goodly quota of Star Club 
material, but sometime, somewhere, during the past three months this 
q ^ te V S Gotten rt Together. Two glasses of ice water and half a 
rut after entering this newest newave mecca, I had thrown my notepad 
joyously into the bog and begun vopping berserkly. 
My enthusiasm uncontainable, I risked turn-downs, flying mucus, 
castration etcetera and clawed my way to The Boyfriends' dressing hole 
and was allowed inside just long enough to extract the lead player and 
the manager. At a nearby booth as cries of "We want The Toyz" continued 
we chatted. 

Very friendly they were. Manager Michael Smyth began with the usual 
vital statistics (green drums: Lee Crystal, sunglassed bass: Jay Nap, 
rhthym guitar: Paddy Williams, lead guitar: Bobby Dee) and capsule 
history ( f ro« New York, of course, and together eight months: veterans 
01 the genre!). I got the obligatory question out of the way next: 
PIG: What do you think of The Sex Pistols? 
DEE: They're a good band - for Europe. 
Okay. Enough of this, you guessed it,- Analytical Pooh. 

We're the most un-English American band, y'know" Bobby said next. I 
begged to differ ("Please let me differ, Bobby, oh PLEASE let me differ" 
grovel grovel). Heck, they'd just come off stage with a blistering 
rendition of The Animals' near-classic "Cheating". 'Yeah, but we do that 
stuff Our Way. We're really into many things, like, um, Eddie Cochran". 
This was followed by a heated debate on whether Rockabilly is The Next 
Big Thing, (all present eventually agreed Yes, except The Toyz Fan Club, 
who Insisted The Toyz were The Next Big Thing) . 

Manager Mike was then telling me all about the usual hassles with agents 
( you'll get paid, man, you'll get paid"), clubowners ("boy, I sure 
don t envy you guys Friday and Saturday night: It's gonna get REAL rowdy 
and, well, you wouldn't be interest ed in the rest and besides they say my 
articles ar&too long

K? 



Nowhere is, Toronto's awe of New York 
more in evidence than in punk rock. It's all a 
matter of reverse status. Because New York 
is bigger and supposedly tougher, it follows 
— for the punk rock audience, at least — 
that its bands are the same. 

The Chimney, the first Yonge St. club to 
try to make punk rock legitimate, is trying 
to cash in on this New York syndrome. Last 
week the club booked The Boy Friends, 
punk's answer to Frankie Avalon. This week 
there's The Fast, punk rock's version of the 
Dave Clarke Five.

XTC 3-D E-P (Virgin VS-19812) : Ever since Larry LeBlanc first spun this 
discopunk twelve-incher at the vrong speed on his luvly CILQ-FM Toronto 
radio show "Backstage Pass "(Sorry, Al Kooper ) , Canada's major newave vinyl 
pushers ( ie : Star Records, Records On Wheels) report brisk sales of an item 
they were convinced was destined to die on the novelty racks alongside "It's 
Gonna Be A Punk Rock Christmas This Year". To my waxy ears, this is the year's 
best (Sorry, Beach Pistols): XTC, whoever you are, I'd relish to book you 
into The Beverly Tavern with Simply Saucer. TEN OINKS 

SIRE MEETS WARNERS (FOUR -LP SET) 

When Seymor Stein said Yes to Mo Ostin over tossed salad last summer, North 

American Punk took a giant leap into the future: that is, the neighbourhood 

Woolworths record bar. Y'see, Sire's former distribution scheme was a 

penguinheap at its most efficient, but now the folks who made Bugs Bunny and 

The Fugs superstars have wasted no dough, Mo, and released Four Big Ones all 

at once. (GRT Records, Sire's original Canadian distributors, are still handling 

them up here on the tundra: Hooray Perry Goldberg I .' !) 

( 1 ) RICj^RD_HE^_AND^THE^0ID0IDS BLANK GENERATION (GRT/Sire 9147-6037) : Stinks, 
even on Don Cramer's stereo-plus (Try to get back on television, Richard). 
The moral of this record is Never let Time Magazine reprint your lyrics. 
NOT EVEN A GRUNT. 

(2)TALKING_HEADS 77 (GRT/Sire 9147-6036): May or may not be this generation's 
BEATLES r©5 ( see PIG Paper Number 6, page 15). EIGHT OINKS 

(3)DEADB0YS YOUNG LOUD AND SNOTTY (GRT/Sire 91^7-6038): Even though Imants 
'tTriougfit "I Need Lunch" was the new Shadows Of Knight, Genya Raven's Small 
Faces production has not let YL&S live up to the Boys' powerful on-stage 
reputation. "Sonic Reducer" almost does it. I only hope Tibor Takas is 
behind the board for DEAD BOYS 78. EIGHT -AND-A-HALF OINKS 

(4)THE^SAINTS (I'M) STRANDED (GRT/Sire 9147-6039) : It's about time... (see PIG 
Paper'Number 5, page 11) NINE OINKS 

BAY^CITY ROLLERS GREATEST HITS (Arista AB-4158) : At long last a Rollers LP you 

"d"on' T t"'Jiave to wait till deletion to scarf up. This witty compilation is well 
worth the 7-29 list price. Once you've wallowed through punk, this is the 
intermediate step before elevating to The Ohio Express, Lemon Pipers, et al, 
Bye -buy. SEVEN OINKS 

IGGY POP LUST FOR LIFE (RCA AFL1-2488) : Okay, okay, I know it's In to label 
Iggy a mis-matched-shoe-and-donkey-tail-wearing-bump-on-a-ski-run (see PIG 
Paper Number 7, page 2), but "Lust For Life" and "Success" are worthy of a 
spin, if only to keep Iggy healthy in his Malibu beach resort. SEVEN OINKS 

Tp, MOTORS ONE ( Polydor/virgln V-2089) : This is also 1977 *s best big record 
'{"Larry LeBlanc realizes this too, I think). Includes, for those of you who 
miss Badfinger - and who doesn't?! - the potential hit single "Dancing The 
Night Away", the first recorded snatch of The Next Big Thing: Reggaepunk 
("Cold Love"), plus six others. Well worth the time and the kash, even though 
bassist Andy McMaster is a much older looking thirty-seven than his counter- 
punk Johnathln Rotten. NINE -AND -A -HALF OINKS 

KINKS "FATHER CHRISTMAS "/"PRINCE OF THE PUNKS" (Arista ASO-296) : This is the 
single that got me back into The Kinks since SLEEPWALKER. A-Side: Kinks kash 
in on Kristmas (great words). B-Side: Kinks Kash in on PuncRok (after inventing 
it) (great Dave Davis guitar). Help The Kinks relokate in NYC buy buying this. 
EIGHT -AND -THREE -QUARTER OINKS 
ELVIS^COSTELLO MY AIM IS TRUE (Columbia PC-35037) : Would this guy have ever ; 

"made'Tt'into The PIG Paper or anywhere else of merit had he named himself 
Reg Costello? You bet he wouldn't. For the Real Thing, try BUDDY HOLLY: A 
ROCK AND ROLL COLLECTION or INTRODUCING HERMAN'S HERMITS and don't be fooled 
by stiff imitations % I'll risk my marriage and give it FIVE OINKS 

B00MT0WN_RATS B00MT0WN RATS (Mercury SRM-1-1198) : Better than the average punk 
elpee , even though The Loved Ones far out-Rat their hit "Lookin After Number 
One". Nice use of keyboards and the cleverest sleeve since The Dishes' FASHION 
PLATES. Besides, anyone who names their publishing company Sewer-Fire Hits 
deserves a good old PIG Plug. I can't wait for the next one, Imants. EIGHT O's 

AFRIKA_KORPS MUSIC TO KILL BY (iron Cross 4001): An all-star K-Telly culling of 
"twenty-two (count 'em: 22 1) sub-Ramones-length "future classics" in the words 
of Greg Shaw. Includes killer kovers of "Tired Of Waiting For You" and "Heart 
Full Of Soul", tributes to Iggy, Joan Jett, and various Boston groupies, a 
few dance crazes, and the mandatory 37-second anti-disco protest song. Send 
$6 to Box 253, Teaneck, New Jersey USA O7666, and Tell'em The Pigs sentcha 
(Dear Solomon: Please plug The PIG Paper in return for this glowing review, 
and many thanks for all those 'Rextasy back-issues) NINE OINKS (for the LP) 

DWIGHT TWILLEY_BAND TWILLEY DON'T MIND (Arista AB-4140) : Twilley and bandmate 
PhTT""why TsnT'lt The Twilley/Seymour Band" Seymour were responsible for one 
of 1975/6's best big records (SINCERELY) and best little records ("I'M ON 
FIRE"). I don't mind their new release's marginal nods towards newave if 
Twilley don't. SIX -POINT -EIGHT -ZERO OINKS 

STANLEY^FRANK "YOU'RE DOING ALRIGHT "/"HEY STUPID "/"COLD TURKEY "/"GOODBYE BABY" 
TTolydor 2230-105): Britain discovered this French Canadian last summer, and 
now he's receiving notice back home (it's the same old story, eh Mr.Munson?) 
Anyone who possesses the Insight to cover Dr .Winston "Boogie 's Plastic Ono 
Band classic and do it justice deserves ravews, so here they come: Stanley 
Frank has released an item that only "VILETONES" can top. Yes, that good! 
The other three cuts on this rejected EP are frank Frank originals, and better 
than your run-of -the-bill crash 'n 'bore . More! EIGHT OINKS 

SUICIDE SUICIDE (Red Star RS-l) : What (do) you get when you cross Kraftwerk, 
Godz , Elvis and Reg Presley, Doors, anesthetic, late mid-period/early late- 
period Dave Clark Five, and Max's Kansas City (?) Write Red Star Records Inc. 
200 West ^7th Street, NYC, USA 10019 . JUST A SHADE BENEATH TEN OINKS 
X-RAYJ3PEX "OH BONDAGE UP YOURS! "/"I AM A CLICHE" (Virgin VS-18912): Not to be 
confused with the dearly-departed Specs, this latest London (England) cult 
item tries their best to sound like The Concordes (Sorry, Concordes) and DO.'.* 
(Sorry again). B-side "I Am A Cliche" isn't. I can hardly wait for the next 
one, and Oh Bondage Up Yours T-Shirts to show up on Merv Griffin's next anti- 
fashion show. NINE OINKS 25
